In September 2013, The Atlanta Journal-Constiution reported about late taxes owed by Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed’s real estate holding company.
Using a combination of real estate and tax records, interviews and e-mails obtained through open records requests, the AJC detailed how Fulton County Tax Commissioner Arthur Ferdinand stepped in to help Reed after a tax lien was sold to a private collection firm.
George Anderson, an ethics watchdog, filed complaints in recent days with city and county ethics officials based on the AJC’s reporting. Local ethics officials will now consider the complaints to see if there is probable cause to investigate.
